Art Resources from the Mid-20th Century: Digitized Highlights from the Collections of Hilla Rebay and Juliana Force - A Collaborative Project Between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art

This collection contains digitized versions of key selections from the personal libraries of two women who helped shape the mid-century New York art world— Hilla Rebay at the Guggenheim (then the Museum of Non-Objective Painting) and Juliana Force at the Whitney. These items allow for a closer look at the movements, artists, and ideas that influenced the founding directors of two of New York City’s most prominent art museums, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Materials include American and European art historical texts, art exhibition catalogs, biographies of artists and collectors, philosophical and political treatises, and New York City guides and tourism pamphlets, and range in date from the late 1800s to the 1960s.

This collaboration was generously funded in part by a grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council - METRO
